When I wrote 31 days of Grace back in October of 2010, I had just turned in my first book. It was a book about grace and I had a lot to say about it. I still do, but it comes out differently now.
Last year when I planned for 31 Days to Change the World, I was feeling brave. Full of courage. Hopeful.
Sometimes there is something you need to say.
Other times, there is something you need to learn.
Most times, it’s both.
This October I will do 31 days a little differently. I thought about not writing at all, as I will be traveling a lot in October. But the 31 day practice is good for me. Doing it in community feels right and encouraging.
This time I don’t plan to write on a topic as much as I feel compelled to write through one. Even in the midst of this active season, I can’t shake the pull to stillness. Quiet listening. Spirit submission.
I’m not sure I have a lot to say about it, but I have a lot I would like to learn. And so I’m going to write through the learning during the month of October.
This feels vulnerable, but also right.
I haven’t named it yet. 31 Days of Curious Listening? Quiet Spaces? Soul Breathing? Stillness? Shutting up?
I will write as I go, a little each day. A very little each day.
What is a topic you could write about for 31 days in a row?
